Screen Shot 2017-02-13 at 7.43.15 PM

Louisville professor Dr. Ricky Jones is an outspoken individual (to say the least).  While discussing a variety of topics from ethics in Frankfort to the death penalty, Dr. Jones came from the top rope to drop the hammer on newly elected state legislator, Dan Johnson.

Watch the full episode with the professor after the jump.

    I always look forward to the angry conservative hot takes on these political posts.

      We all know who the real racists are. And there’s that Socialist term thrown out like its an insult…better than being a fascist… like your hero, Herr Comrade Gropenfuhrer Drumpf.

    The death penalty bill is a “Whatever Bill”. The death penalty isn’t enforced in most cases and even if you get the death penalty you will sit on deathrow for 25 years over appeals and people forget why you are even there. If, as a state, KY isn’t using it justly or applying it evenly it should be off the books.

    House Bill 202 is stupid and shouldn’t even be considered. Why mess with Louisville. Either apply it to all mayors or none at all.

    House Bill 235 is dumb as well. If there is no Sanctuary cities then why make a law against them. Although, the left, which is on a whole typically against federalism seems to be in favor of it in this case. I just want a list as to what federal laws are ok to ignore and which ones aren’t.

    Senate Bill 123 is a tough call but I say they need to have caught them committing the crime before we take away their ability to drive. Also, too vague on how to get the license back if they take it. Needs to be a objective standard, like 2 or 3 passed drug test if the law is enacted.

    Senate Bill 152 seems to be bad at first, but then I read the law and it is current issues seminar that has been cut.
    22 (5) Each legislator, after completion of an orientation training course, shall complete
    23 one (1) current issues seminar annually.
    So all legislators have been through the orientation class that is 3 hours. The current events class should just build off that knowledge and don’t need to be another 3 hours.
    I don’t know why the Jones’s chose to leave that part out but whatever.

      Agree on SB 123. There needs to be an actual crime of a vehicular nature before any rights or privileges are suspended. Posession is a crime. Operating under the influence is a crime. Ingestion and (non public) intoxication is not a crime. If they wish to make overdose a crime then do so. As written this bill is an affront to medical privacy and an end run around due process.
